Hairy hands/legs after cast removal (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

I'm surprised there is not much talk about this phenomena. I'm sure you either saw it with your own eyes or read about it. It is even described as something to expect upon cast removal.

So far I have not heard a good explanation why this happens. It obviously has to do something about bone fracture healing also effecting surrounding hair follicles but that's very general.

Follica experiment guys wanna ring in? :)

Dark hair after cast has been taken off?
I had a cast on my hand up to my elbow. I had it removed and now I have dark thicker hair where the cast was. Has this happened to anyone? And how did you get rid of this problem!!??? I normally have thin blonde hair on my hands and arms. HELP!!!

When bones are trying to heal, the body sends and increase amount of blood supply to heal it. Therefore, everything in the surrounding area gets a boost, including hair follicles. It is actually quite common, and generally improves in a few weeks. You don't have anything to worry about.

@ Spanish Dude

but things go back to normal after a few weeks

so, when the bone heals, its over, and hairs will be back to the previous state. :-(

What nonsense.

Most likely the skin on the arm turned very white from not being exposed to light.

And so the hairs will appear darker in contrast to the paper white skin.

The contrast can even be greater had the person a history of much time in the sun, which bleaches hair and further darkens skin. Covering the area with a cast would reverse the effects of sunlight: lighter skin, darker hair.

And if that doesn't explain this phenomenon, then there's something else afoot other than an increased blood supply because of the broken bone (sheesh).

No it's not the skin contrast. Hairs itself are much longer and darker. I have seen this first hand many times.

I also don't think it has anything to do with blood supply.

Like I said my guess would be it has something to do with bone healing and the associated release of 'growth factors' which also effect surrounding tissue, including hair.

That's why I said Follica experiment guys on this forum should ring in with their thoughts :)

http://www.gloshospitals.org.uk/ppi/leaflets/pdf/ghpi0033.pdf

Here is one link where it clearly states 'more hairy' is common after cast removal. Page 2.

Oh and I don't want anyone breaking their skulls.

Peace ;)

EDIT: oh and just to be clear. This happens to ladies too. That's the only reason I noticed it. I have a few female friends who had very tiny blond almost invisible hairs on their hands. After cast was removed they were hairy like a man. It was scary.

Hairy hands/legs after cast removal

» So far I have not heard a good explanation why this happens.

I've never had a cast, but if casts cause any kind of friction/irritation, then this would explain the hair growth.

From Dr. Proctor:

The two best examples are in given in Kligman, A, History of Baldness From
Magic to Medicine, Clinics in Dermatology (1988),vol 6, #4, p 83.

Dr. Kligman is the discoverer of Retin-A treatment for acne. In his
paper, he lists two examples of chronic friction stimulating hair growth.
These are that retarded children who chew on thier forearms grow mats of hair
where they chew. In addition, before refrigerators, icemen would carry
blocks of ice on their shoulders over leather pads. They would develop big
mat of hair under the pads. There are also credible reports in the medical
literature about chronic masssage of scalps growing hair.

What im going to say is controversial but here it goes

so, back few years when i was obsessed with hairloss and depressed. at some point i started to hate my head shape, and in that anger that i cant do anything about it i very strongly pressed my skull on the sides in an attempt to make my head hurt.

anyway, that was in time when i was losing 300 hair daily. I was very obsessive about it and I pulled my hair constantly to count it. just one day after this, i lost almost none.

Since then I tried it few more times. What I would do is that i would pull all hair out (dense combing), then I waited a day and combed again count the hair.

Or alternatively, comb all hair out, do this skull crushing exercise (do not try this at home ppl!), waited one day and againcombed to count the hair. The decrease of hair fall is VERY noticeable.

I do not recommend you to try it. i used strong force, both knees crushing my head from the sides with full strength. definately do not even consider trying this if you are too muscular :) I'm not.

Hairs may bleach in the presence of oxygen, which is in less supply under a cast. In addition, it must be very humid under the cast, which may cause the hair follicles to absorb water and to swell.

Finally, with no rubbing of any kind to dislodge dead hairs, the arm may appear to have more hair than normal when the cast is removed.

@ Ahab

You are right

both of you may have good points.
Maybe it has to do with growth factors from bone healing, or maybe hairs grow longer because of the new tight environment. Maybe the pressure exerted by the cast upon the hairs, make them grow longer. An experiment: to place a cast in a non- broken arm, and see if you get a hairy arm.

Recently I saw a person's cast removed. I think the cast was in place for 3 months... there was a lot of dead skin accumulated. It was incredible. Maybe hair also accumulates without shedding.

@ Spanish Dude

You are right

Abrading the skin can stimulate hair growth noticeably. That's the bottom line. Multiple real-world examplies seem to bear this out.




Is it significant regrowth, consistently/repeatably happening, with a scietifically-understood method of action? No.

But all kinds of expensive MPB products on the market are being sold with less demonstrated proof than abrasion already has going for it. And abrasion has hardly ever seen much real reasearch on it for that matter.

I just had another thought: what if there is some chemical in the cast material that is stimulating hair growth?

The chemcial might get into the skin by off-gassing, by rubbing, or by being dissovled in sweat.

It certainly is. More insane thing is though that it actually works. I have tried it like 5 times. It worked every single time.

All in all I think that bones and hairgrowth can have some connection.

All in all though it may be the other way around as well The fact that it worked NEXT day to decrease the shedding, imho opens up a possibility that it merely stops hairgrowth so no new hair enters anagen and thus does not push the old hair out.

im thinning in a 2a pattern ,im 34 have been thinning for 10 years,so very slowly ,also there is no history of hairloss on either side of my family ,im also mixed white and black so have think curly hair.in the thinning area at the front if i gently tug the hair i could get 20 hairs out every time since i first noticed loss,

the thing now is i had an accident a few days ago and fractured my skull and grazed the balding area,now the grazed area is healing ,if i do the pull test i cant even get 1 hair out,also i havent washed my hair for a while as hospital said dont,but washed it 2day not 1 hair dropped .is it possible i had te and the thinning has stopped ,could lost hair grow back?

its weird ,has any 1 got any ideas

good catch! He says the abraded area is growing stronger hair.

So he had an accident, broke his skull, and abraded (scraped) his thinning scalp. and now this scalp is healing and hair is much stronger.
I assume the abrasion must have been quite severe in that accident!!

Well, if this is true, then there must be more cases like this out there. Abrading the scalp in an accident is very common.

no idea. all i know is that i had this head crushing experience as well, i didnt break any bone, just stressed it a bit and hair stopped falling.

neosh101 is based around a bone growth factor science as well.

good catch! He says the abraded area is growing stronger hair.

One plausible explanation is that the head crushing is causing increased circulation to the scalp (same as the accident/surgery). Putting your head between your knees will clearly cause a rush of blood to the head, but you don't need to crush.

The other thing is you're playing with fire, first unless you have very clean arteries and/or very experienced at this you could cause yourself some damage (aka stroke). I read this one time when researching head stands which I used to do years ago. Apparently this guy had done yoga headstands for years, and all the other stuff, trim in shape guy. Then he got a stroke from the headstands. The issue is the older we get the more we clog the piping, forcing water into a jammed weak hose, and it will spring a leak (stroke).

Just fair warning that although inversion is good it also is not without risks. BTW, the crushing part is the worst because that even causes more pressure to build up in the hose (your piping).

I agree, that whenever we stress our machinery in weird ways, we risk breaking it. In 99.9...% of the cases, the damage doesn't exist, or it is just transient. But if you do it repeatedly, you never know...

@ Spanish Dude

good catch! He says the abraded area is growing stronger hair.

Not trying to dig up old threads, but one of the reasons this could be happening is either growth factors or Bone Morphogenetic Proteins, they are believed to have a role in hair growth as well. I'm not 100% sure on this, but it could be an explanation.


I believe that jarjarbinx's Histogen mixture may have some of these bad boys too.

From Follica patent:
The invention is also based, in part, on the principle that human skin is replenished by bone-marrow derived and tissue-derived stem cells throughout life. In some embodiments, the lithium treatment(s) is used in combination with methods that mobilize tissue stem cells (e.g., using integumental perturbation); and/or methods that mobilize bone marrow-derived stem cells (e.g., growth factors such as G-CSF and/or chemical agents such as plerixafor (Mozobil®)); and/or methods that regulate the differentiation of these stem cells into gender-specific specialized human hair follicles

Shivers, thanks for the info, but do you spend all your time trying to revive 4 year old threads, buddy?

Lol, I like to contribute any additional info I come across to the existing threads, past or present. Trying to keep the forum, nice and organized, not filled with silly comments. It will help with research. If I could avoid the thread from being placed on the front page I would.

I guess its better than constantly bumping PGD2 threads with silly posts, dont you think? This forum is very unorganized, one million threads about the same stuff over and over again. Why cant we join all of the pgd2 threads together so its easier for people to search & read. Roger, you started a great thread about Nasalcrom as a pgd2 inhbitor, all nasalcrom related comments should be placed in that thread. We dont need ten other new threads about nasalcrom. Thats my rant :-D

The appeal of the HairSite forums for some of us is precisely that. It's somewhat more loosely organized than many of the other popular hair loss sites, which have topics rigidly organized into a lot of "silos", and that categorization of posters into different classes -- e.g., newbie, novice, experienced poster, expert, etc. -- as far as I'm concerned forums like that are very elitist and over-organized.

The downside of the looseness here at HairSite is that people can easily take advantage of it, by disrupting the forums, trolling and posting nonsense, and getting into fights and flame wars. That's much harder to do on the more highly-regulated forums.

I think another great aspect of HairSite is that the great majority of the current discussions are always about CURRENT topics -- i.e., the latest trend or advance which is on people's minds right NOW, and which relate to RECENT developments.

I'm not one for rewatching old movies or TV reruns, and for the same reason, I don't like to regurgitate, revisit, and re-read forum postings that I've seen a long time ago, or that I know come from years ago. The discussions have died down and died out, and as I said -- as far as I'm concerned -- it's happened for a reason. Those subjects are generally tapped out because they've reached a dead end, people can't find anything new to add.

If you have something new to post about a very old subject, I think the best way to do it is just start a new thread, summarize what you know (or what we know) very briefly, and add your new news.

Reviving a very old topic may be easy to do on this forum, because it's not as rigidly organized as some of the other forums, but it also can disrupt the forum, when people are talking about very current topics, and all of a sudden this monster thread of 186 comments arises from 2009, like a swamp creature arising from a bog. No offense to you at all, you've posted some good information, but to me, reviving old posts from several years back is very distracting.
